times progressives giving that withdrawal statement during the obama administration. i would be a distraction, et cetera. for a conservative to do it. wow! who are these legendary progressives who can get president obama to listen to them. as you can see from the presidential inaugural committee, they have listened in deed. if there's one progressive group that gets the job done, it is gay rights activists. god bless their heart. matt joins us in studio. there's a lot to discuss. how in the world does the gay rights community get so many successes politically? >> i think in this instance in particular, you saw the obama administration's desire not to have rick warren part two. that plagued him for weeks. weeks and weeks. and knowing how well the lbgt movement worked for the obama reelection campaign, there's no way they were interested in messing this up. there's a bottom line. lgbt helped get obama reelected and he knows that. >> cenk: i think you've hit on it exactly. that so how did they get him reelected? the lgbt community is strong, but not a high percentage of the vote
in the bush administration. now he's being nominated by the obama administration. i think it's an opportunity for us all to raise hell about the issue and demand that the senate in the confirmation hearings ask him questions about the program. >> cenk: i suspect senator widen will have some objections. i suspect, and then we'll be done. we'll get massively outvoted. what does that tell us about the state of the democratic party when the democratic president takes a guy considered so loathsome that he could not nominate to be head of the c.i.a. in 2009 because of torture-related issues, now nominates him and will get the democratic party to go along with it. >> i think it's an indication of why partisan politics has its limitations and why it's important that people who care fundfundamentalfundamentally about issues be and we should have learned from the lgbt community there is one way that government responds, that is pressure. when people talked to me and said please tell obama this, please tell obama that. the notion that we have that kind of power is only a little bit misleading, but on th
it is celebrating torture or whether they got information from the obama administration classified information they shouldn't have. and will this hurt its chances in the academy awards? 1-866-55-press. we'll be back. talking movies on the "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "full court press." the "bill press show" live on your radio and on current tv. stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >> you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. just be grateful current tv does not come in smellivision. the sweatshirt is nice and all but i could use a golden lasso. (vo) only on current tv. i want the people who watch our show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. >> announcer: heard around the country and seen on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: hey 13 minutes before the top of the hour, nothing better on a friday than to think about what we're doing this weekend. movies, still a big part of our lives, especi
departure adds to the mounting criticism of the obama administration for now seeming to stack its cabinet with men. all of the recent nominations are white males. as for who will remain eric holder is going to stay on for a second term and secretary of veteran at fairs. we're back after the break. stay with us. ♪ alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. um, hello. these ugly stains are ruining my good looks and style. and good luck using that cleaner. excuse me, miss ? he's right. those are tough hard water stains, and that cleaner's not gonna cut it. truth is, 85% of us have hard water and many don't even know it. you need lime-a-w
the majority back. >> that would be great. everybody is waiting for the obama scandal in the first administration. it never came around. he has been able to do things that other presidents have not been able to do. if he could book end it, that would be amazing. obama has had to deal the right wing noise machine and fox news and how they're trying to gum up the works. they're trying to do anything like the g.o.p. drag everything down, fight every nomination. obama is really fighting forces we've never seen unleashed on a president before. we can't just talk about congress. he's fighting very well oiled well financed attack machine and noise machine. he's doing very five years into this game. >> that pivots back to the house where the republican can control, and the president can get a vote unless john boehner said there is a majority of republicans who will join this. most republicans support gun control. how do you get a vote in the house when you have so many house members who are afraid to go against rush limbaugh, hannity and all the rest. can you make john boehner the issue an
